All important information, tips and tricks on domestic electrosmog

"I know something you don't see and that is… electrosmog." The radiation cloud is caused by man-made radiation fields. We do not see it. Do not feel. Nevertheless, awareness is growing among the population and the topic of radiation exposure is being hotly debated in relation to high-voltage power lines and powerful technologies such as 5G. But what is actually with electrosmog in the own four walls? Radiate it at home too? E-smog robs us of our healthy sleep? Learn everything you need to know about electrosmog from the wall socket. Due to high demand, we have updated this article. To answer the question "Electrosmog in the children's room: Which radiation sources are there??" added.

Does it radiate or does it not radiate?

With WLAN, Bluetooth and mobile radio, it is obvious and understandable that something is radiating. After all, the radiation here is targeted – by means of high-frequency electromagnetic fields – generated and used for the transmission of data. Radiation, however, is generally associated as a side effect with other electrical appliances and installations as well. High-voltage power lines, for example, are known for the radiation they emit.

But what is actually going on with the domestic power grid? Does electrosmog also occur at home?

The domestic electrical installation carries alternating voltage with a frequency of 50 Hertz. This is a low-frequency system in which two types of fields and thus potential sources of radiation are generated: electric fields and magnetic fields.

Electric fields are generated wherever a voltage is present. Magnetic fields, on the other hand, are only generated by the flow of current, i.e. when a consumer is actually switched on. There is always an electric field in household appliances and lamps as long as the plug is in the socket. If household appliances or lamps are switched on, the current starts to flow and magnetic fields are generated.

Which devices contribute to electrosmog and how much?

Cell phones, lamps, televisions, microwaves, power outlets and power cables thus contribute to electrosmog in your own four walls. However, to varying degrees. Basically: The stronger the current, the stronger the magnetic field. According to this, a stronger magnetic field is generated around a construction spotlight than around a light bulb.

However, the technology of the respective device is also decisive, because transformers and electric motors generate strong magnetic fields even at low currents. A dimmable light generates a much stronger magnetic field than the good old light bulb.

Tip: Radiation exposure can be determined with broadband measuring instruments for the high-frequency or low-frequency measuring range.

The problem of electric fields: How dangerous are they?

Radiation all well and good, but what danger do electric and magnetic fields ultimately pose to the human body? The radiation emitted by these fields is called non-ionizing because it does not have enough energy to transform atoms into ions (positively charged particles). A direct damage to the genetic material can therefore, according to the Federal Office for Radiation Protection (BfS) does not take place.

Nevertheless, health damage caused in other ways is possible: high-frequency electromagnetic fields – such as those from WLAN routers – can cause molecules in the body to vibrate and thus heat tie. While this phenomenon is welcome when it comes to heating up the spaghetti from the day before in the microwave, unwanted heating of human tie by high-frequency fields can cause damage to health. Therefore, most of the limit values of the BfS refer to this type of exposure.

Are there health risks from the electrosmog from the socket?

The risks are not yet all known and sufficiently researched, about the effects the radiation spirits argue. However, it is clear that even low-frequency electric and magnetic fields – and thus electrosmog from the wall socket – can generate electric fields and currents in the human body.

These currents superimpose or prevent the body's own nerve impulses. The intensity and duration of the radiation are decisive for the consequences: While our organism is tolerant of such effects to a certain extent, it cannot compensate for this unnatural additional stress in the long term and can become ill.

Tip: It has been proven that certain electrical devices and instruments, such as pacemakers, can be affected by electromagnetic fields.

To what extent do electrical outlets in the bedroom affect health??

people differ both in their opinion of and in their physical reaction to radiation. While some people deny health damages caused by electrosmog and do not observe any effects on their own body, others report on electromagnetic radiation sensitive people from Complaints Such as headaches, difficulty concentrating, exhaustion, sleep problems and fatigue.

Bedrooms are a particularly critical area when it comes to electrosmog, because the human body is particularly susceptible to disturbances during sleep. Critics of electrosmog warn of a worrisome effect on the pineal gland, which produces the sleep-inducing hormone melatonin. They explain the sleep disturbances with the fact that the electrical smog inhibits the Melatoninproduktion. Since melatonin also has an anti-cancer effect on certain tumors, it is concluded that there is a slightly increased risk of blood cancer.

What are the dangers of electrosmog in the children's room?

While electronic pets and superheroes seem to reign over the chaos in some children's rooms, concerns about electrosmog come up here as well. Critics see radiation exposure in children's rooms as problematic because a growing body is more sensitive to radiation. The extent to which electrosmog actually affects the growth and development of children's nerve cells has not been scientifically clarified.

Electrosmog in the children's room: What sources of radiation are there??

In the children's room nowadays there are numerous sources of radiation. It already starts with applications like baby monitors and goes all the way to smart diapers – all with the purpose of facilitating the care of the child. For some children, measuring systems with sensors are also used when medical monitoring is required.

Even when children aren't playing with adult devices, many are now digital toys in their environment to be found:

– Interactive toys with control via mobile device (z. B. helicopters, drones, cars) – Interactive toys with their own remote control (z. B. Walkie talkies, children's computers, trains) – Passive toys with a radio connection (e.g., toys with a radio connection). B. Speakers or radio-controlled music boxes) – Apps on smartphones or tablets designed for children

How to avoid radiation in the children's room?

If attention is paid to radiation exposure from individual devices, it can be prevented or at least reduced in many cases.

Here are a few tips on how to protect your children from electrosmog:

– Do not give young children mobile devices such as tablets and smartphones as toys. – Be sure to turn off radios when not in use. – Turn off the WLAN in households with small children when not in use and make sure your child is as far away from the router as possible. – Check which devices can have the wireless connection deactivated (TVs, computers, stereos) and activate the wireless connection only when necessary. – Keep smartphones and tablets as far away as possible when using them in the presence of children. – When on the move, prefer to use offline games for children. Due to poor reception in buses, trains and cars, a particularly high transmitting power is often required.

Hint: When buying toys, already make sure to choose low-radiation products. The Blue Angel seal of the German government as well as test reports can serve as orientation.

Tricks to reduce electrosmog in the bedroom

Those who are not floating on radiation cloud seven and are concerned about the possible health risks would like to withdraw as far as possible from electrosmog. Since this is often difficult in today's society and we are often dependent on electrical appliances in our daily lives, a place of retreat is needed: the bedroom.

With a few tricks, the Radiation exposure in the bedroom Consistently Reduce:

– Unplug devices: The easiest way to prevent electrosmog from devices located in the bedroom is to unplug them. Remember that standby mode or turning off the devices is often not enough. – Use battery-powered devices: A better alternative for the clock radio is a battery-powered alarm clock. If you find a battery-powered alarm clock not reliable enough, use one without a radio function. – Get electrical appliances and cords out of the bedroom: Don't leave mains-powered electrical appliances and cables in the bedroom. Electrosmog or not, the evening television program can also make for restless nights regardless of the radiation. – Create distance: Keep a distance from cables and devices in the room and also pay attention to fields created by installations in neighboring rooms. Position the alarm clock at a distance from the headboard – then you are guaranteed to get out of bed in the morning. consciously choose: Energy-saving lamps, dimmable night lights and fluorescent tubes have increased radiation levels. Not even a garlic on the bedside table can prevent that. Conventional light bulbs are ideal for lighting in the bedroom. Optimize bed: Position your bed at least one meter away from the power outlet. Refrain from using electrically adjustable slatted frames and electric electric blankets.

Tip: Metal objects amplify electromagnetic radiation, so beds made of wood are recommended.

Effective products for shielding electromagnetic radiation

Since constantly unplugging can be sporting and shielding clothing can be cumbersome, there are effective products for shielding electromagnetic radiation:

ABB Stotz S&J Mains Disconnect Switch

Mains isolation switch

A mains isolation switch or also mains decoupler detects when all downstream consumers are switched off and interrupts the power supply. Interfering electromagnetic fields are thus prevented. For monitoring, a biologically uncritical DC voltage is applied. The component can be integrated in the fuse box, for example, in the circuit of the bedroom.

Shielded, switchable adapter plugs and power strips

Under desks, in bedrooms and in children's rooms, it is particularly useful to replace conventional power strips with shielded adapter plugs or power strips. These shield against the alternating electric field when mains voltage is present. Prevent thereby a strong radiation exposure.

Shielded cables

The cables usually used in domestic electrical installations only come with protection against moisture and mechanical damage. An additional metallic protection provides for the shielding of electromagnetic radiation with special cables. The electric fields in the cable are dissipated against the ground, which is why proper grounding is important. Ideally, the cables should be installed directly as part of a new building or renovation project.

Notice: Structural measures such as special building panels or shielding fabrics can be installed in walls and roofs and help to keep radiation exposure away from the outside.

Result: Electrosmog – invisibly and nevertheless there

So simple the question "Does it shine or does not shine?" can be answered and expressed in measured values, so difficult it becomes with regard to the health risks associated with radiation. Electrosmog and its long-term effects are still a largely unexplored and controversial field, which is why a lot of false information is circulating. Here it applies to differentiate specialized lamps from footboard emitters.

Anyone who fears health risks associated with electrosmog can use simple measures to selectively create radiation-free zones or products for effective shielding. And whoever feels like a break from radiation with all the electromagnetic fields from WLAN, induction stove and TV can simply pull the plug.
